Tek and Steele performed two of their most iconic songs: “Bucktown,” their breakout single, and “Stand Strong.” Both songs appeared on their 1995 masterpiece Dah Shinin’.  What makes this performance unique, of course, is that you’re hearing these gritty songs get new life, thanks to the D.C.-based Black Alley band.
